Mai Chau is 135km from the South West of Hanoi. It is located in a peaceful valley, surrounded by mountains and rice fields. Here, the pace is much slower to the big cities, providing a terrific opportunity to relax and unwind. Let spend one day with us on this trip to discover Mai Chau.
|DEPARTURE/RETURN LOCATION||Your Hotel in Ha Noi|
|DEPARTURE TIME||7:45 AM|
|TRANSPORTATION||A/C Car /Minivan|
As you know, Mai Chau is a small town, with one main street, occupied by a small market. You will explore Mai Chau by a bike and ride on the dirt roads. Your guide will lead you through the tiny villages that are dotted throughout the valley; it is really a normal and fun way of getting around, and you are able to go completely at your own pace.
It will be also time for visitors to learn more what will be going on for the people’s lives here. These people work hard in their fields and in their farms by manual labor, but not by automated machinery.
In addition, you can see most women working in the fields and then stopping for a chat with one another as they stand up to rest for awhile. The mental and physical toughness that these women manifest is incredible, with much of their time spent either crouching, squatting or at the very least bent over. They are always happy to give a smile or to wave their hands to us. Like all parts of Vietnam, these villages are full of friendly people. They belong to minority tribes; however, they can, quite rightfully, behave as lovely ones towards tourists and can attract them coming again to visit this tourist place. Say “hello” and stop awhile to chat to them, as well as buy something from their stall and ask them before you want to take a photo with them if they are in close to you.
Finally, in the evening, you will be taken back to your hotel in Ha Noi City.
